The spread was good quality but was a little small. I am worried about washing because if it shrinks it will not fit the king size bed.

I got my Cooper Paisley quilt set yesterday. First the pros: The King quilt is larger at 106x92 compared to other King quilts/comforters at 102x86. A Cal-King mattress is 4 narrower and 4 longer than a King. Since the quilt has scallops on all four sides and the paisley pattern is undirectional, it makes a perfect coverlet for a Cal-King bed when the quilt is turned sideways. Even after washing and drying in the dryer, it hangs down 15 on all three sides. Now the cons: I ordered the chocolate color. When I opened the package it was covered with white lint. I tried to brush it off but found that much of it was attached as though the quilting had been done with a dull needle and bits of the white backing/batting between the layers of chocolate colored fabric had been pushed through with the stitches. Not all of the quilting was that way, but way too much. I washed and dried the set to remove the chemical odor (smell is gone) and hoped it would puff up the quilting and make the white disappear. It did not. I spent 2 hours with duct tape wrapped around my hand patting the quilt trying to remove loose lint which, in the laundry, had attached itself to the quilting thread as pills. There were also quite a few globs of thread where the quilting machine messed up and I had no choice but to cut them off and hope for the best. Probably if I had ordered a white or light colored quilt set, the poor quality quilting would have been less of an issue as it would not have been as noticeable. There is evidently very poor quality control within this manufacturing company as many people who have purchased the identical quilt set have left glowing reviews and I have to believe they received a different quilt than I did. It makes it difficult to purchase from Overstock when quality is a gamble. All it takes is a few poorly made products to negate the savings you got from the good ones. Return shipping is a costly option.
After reading the reviews and ordering this item, I wasn't dissappointed! The quality far exceeded what I expected for the price. Looks beautiful as a bedspread-fine stitching and a nice neutral ivory color to match everything. Ordered the king size for a queen bed. It's just the right weight to provide that extra warmth on a chilly night. Great value!
This is the third matlesse cover in my house. They are wonderful, easy to take care of, just throw it in the washer and it comes out looking like new. If you have children, guests or pets, it is the perfect product. When they leave a mess or it just needs to be freshened up, just wash it and everyone will think it is always new. Enjoy!
I like to collect and layer matelasse quilts... this one is charming and you cannot beat that price. I ordered white and it is so white and so comfy after laundering... I read reviews and got a king for my queen and it is perfect and beautiful. Thanks Overstock
This is a beautiful coverlet quilt. However the color "chocolate" that is sold in various locations varies in intensity. This was much darker than the other furnishings in the room and didnt match my other thing (draperies, etc) I regret that I may have to return it.
This set is very nice, the king is almost the same size as a queen sized bedspread( just shorter across the bottom but still covers the mattress and box spring. ) However I can only rate it as fair since the return shipping is not covered should you need to return it. I bought a dust ruffle, which I didn't need due to the size of the comforter which would be great except I lost over 1/2 the cost of the dust ruffle when I sent it back( ruffle was $$ with shipping promo, I got only $ refunded after I returned it due to shipping fees). So I won't be buying from here again even though all the items I bought were first rate. Just costs way to much if you have to return it.
Love this quilt. For the price you get a really quality quilt with a beautiful stitched pattern. The queen was a little small if you want your quilt hanging low over the sides. Thought about switching it to a king size but didn't want to have the king shams. So far it's working great and has been a lovely warm weather bedspread!
I love this quilt. I read the other reviews before purchasing and would say that I agree with all the positive comments. It washed well, lightweight and soft, and fits our king size bed perfectly.
